Afro Latin Vintage OrchestraPulsion ... CD
Ubiquity, 2014. New Copy ... $12.99 16.98
A darker groove than usual from this hip European combo – a record that still has their commitment to global sounds at its core, but which also comes across with these great 70s electric modes too – almost echoes of Dark Magus Miles Davis and Sextant Herbie Hancock – thanks to ... read more CD

Edip AkbayramEdip Akbayram ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1974. New Copy ... $9.99
A seminal debut set from Edip Akbanyram – a 70s Turkish singer whose music is every bit as compelling as arabesk rock by Baris Manco or Erkin Koray! Like both of those artists, Edip mixes older Anatolian roots with a freakier, fuzzier style from the psych generation – mixing electric ... read more CD

Edip Akbayram & DostlarNedir Ne Degildir ... CD
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1977. New Copy ... $9.99
A later gem from the Turkish scene of the 70s – one that's got a bit more funky touches than earlier Anatolian rock! There's still a fair bit of Eastern styles running through the mix, but most of the rhythms are really straightforward and use heavy basslines that really set the groove ... read more CD
Also available Nedir Ne Degildir ... LP 25.99

Slim Ali & The Hodi Boys70s Soul ... CD
ARC (UK), Late 70s. New Copy ... $12.99 14.99
Rare soul from 70s Kenya – music that's quite different than the usual Afro Funk of the period, and which has a sound that's more in the mode of American southern soul! Slim Ali since throughout, mostly in English – and it's clear that he's learned plenty from Tennessee soul of the ... read more CD

Tony AllenFilm Of Life ... CD
Jazz Village (France), 2014. New Copy ... $19.99
Maybe the best album we've heard from Tony Allen in years – a really compelling set that still holds onto all the elements we love in his music, but which also introduces all these great other bits as well! The sound's never unfocused or confused – and instead, it kind of allows Allen ... read more CD

Gyedu-Blay AmbolleySimigwa ... CD
Academy, 1975. New Copy ... $11.99 17.99
A holy grail of 70s African Funk – and not just for the unusual look of the cover! The set's a really unique one – almost rootsier than most of the better-known Ghanian grooves of the time, but funkier too – with a brilliant blend of raw percussion, quirky basslines, and some ... read more CD
(Limited to 1500 copies. CD comes with a 15 x 15 poster of the cover art.)

Christie Azumah & The Uppers InternationalDin Ya Sugri ... CD
Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $22.99
Great Ghana grooves from the 70s – a smoking set that features some lead vocals from Christie Azuma, but lots more sweet sounds from The Uppers International Dance Band – a really well-titled combo, given the positive spirit of their music! The tunes bubble along wonderfully in this ... read more CD

Dao BandonKon Kee Lang Kwai (Man Or Water Buffalo) – Essential Dao Brandon ... CD
EM/Paradise Bangkok (Japan), Mid 70s. New Copy ... $20.99
With a singer this obscure, you might take the word "essential" in the title a bit loosely – but the set is a stunning batch of work from this popular Thai vocalist of the 70s! Dao Bandon's voice is amazing right from the start, even if you can't understand the language (although ... read more CD
Also available Kon Kee Lang Kwai (Man Or Water Buffalo) – Essential Dao Brandon ... LP 23.99

BatidaDois ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
The second album from Batida, and even more crackling than the first – bristling beats, bubbling electronics, and a strongly Brazilian undercurrent – all blended together in the best contemporary styles we've been hearing from the Soundway label of late! Vocals are by a shifting lineup ... read more CD
Also available Dois (with bonus download) ... LP 14.99

Black Truth Rhythm BandIfetayo (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Soundway (UK), 1976. New Copy Gatefold ... $14.99 17.98
Wow! The one-and-only album by Trinidadian combo Black Truth Rhythm Band – a completely incredible one at that – hypnotic Caribbean funky soul, jazz and wildly impressive musicianship all around by this group led by singer and multi-instrumentalist Oluko Imo. The record was made in ... read more CD

Bomba EstereoElegancia Tropical ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2013. New Copy ... $13.99
The best album so far from this up-and-coming Colombian group – a great mix of rootsy elements and more electronic production – served up in the forward-reaching style we've come to love in recent projects from the Soundway label! Bomba Estereo are easily one of the most contemporary ... read more CD

New CS CrewFunky Pack ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, 1976. New Copy ... $13.99
A massive set from Nigeria's CS Crew – and a set that definitely lives up to its title! The bass is super-heavy on these grooves – way more so than on other Afro Funk records of the time, and in ways that easily match, if not beat, the early best by Fatback Band and Kool & The Gang ... read more CD

Marius CultierOuelele Souskai (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Sonodisc/Creole Stream (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $15.99
Maybe the funkiest albums ever from Marius Cultier – and definitely one of the records that perfectly shows off his wonderful post-colonial blend of sounds! There's bits of funk from both sides of the Atlantic going on here – roots in both Africa and the Caribbean, but fused through ... read more CD

CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Paco De LuciaEn Vivo Desde Teatro Real ... CD
Philips/Universal (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $14.99
A strong live set from the great Paco DeLucia – one that has his sublime acoustic guitar sounds really ringing out in the large space of a theater – which creates a slightly different vibe than some of his more close-up studio records of the 70s! DeLucia is extremely commanding in this ... read more CD

Manu DibangoAfricadelic ... CD
Aurora, Early 70s. New Copy ... $16.99
Incredibly funky work from Manu Dibango – a set that's easily as great as his classic Soul Makossa album – but which is a lot more obscure overall! The work's got a fiercely-jamming quality all the way through – lots of rumbling percussion at the bottom, and also a bit of ... read more CD

Aby Ngana DiopLiital ... CD
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1994. New Copy ... $11.99 14.98
Really unique music from Aby Ngana Diop – a poet as much as a singer – and one who speaks here over some really raw, really driving music that's plenty heavy on percussion! The sound is quite different than other Senegalese styles you might know from the time – as the sabar and ... read more CD
Also available Liital (with bonus download) ... LP 14.99

FelaFela Live In Detroit 1986 (3CD set) ... CD
Knitting Factory, 1986. New Copy 3CD ... $15.99 22.99
Amazing sounds from Fela – a previously-unreleased live show from the mid 80s! Given that there's very few live recordings of Fela at all, the album's quite a treasure – and is almost even more important, as it's one of the few from a time when Fela was hardly recording at all – ... read more CD

Freedom FamilyAyentsoo (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Disques Dessinee (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... $22.99
A fantastic funky combo from the mid 70s African scene – one who worked previously with Geraldo Pino, and who definitely show some traces of his own great work too – but who also have a madly great groove that's all their own! Freedom Family are definitely on the funkier side of the ... read more CD
Also available Freedom Family (with bonus download) ... LP 16.99

New Fumaca PretaFumaca Preta ... CD
Soundway (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $11.99 12.98
Heady psych, but with a funky groove – done by a contemporary group on Soundway, and truly akin to the global psych funk of late 60s and 70s we've always loved from the label! Fumaca Preta founder/percussion/vocalist Alex Figueira is Portuguese-Venezuelan and based in Amsterdam – and ... read more CD
